As Dr. Stroustrup explains in the preface, this book covers all the highlights from the latest versions of the language & standard libraries (C++11, C++14, and C++17). New language features are quickly introduced but in a very clear and logical order, and each new feature is clearly and concisely explained. The book also includes a wealth of good, practical advice on the issues of design, performance, and style, as well as plenty of sample code to help you better understand how or why all of these features can and should be used. I'm amazed at how much information is included in such a short book, without sacrificing readability and understanding.
I only have one minor complaint about this book: he also includes several new features that are expected to be included in C++20. The C++ standards committee is clearly working on several cool new features, and thanks to his explanations in this book I have a clear understanding of why these new features are important and how they can improve my own code, but it's disappointing to have to wait a few more years to use them. (Sections discussing potential new features in C++20 are clearly marked as such, so we get to know exactly what we're missing out on)
Very happy to have pre-ordered now seeing it is out of order. Only given 4 stars because of poor editing job by the publisher. Many typos for the first print, words like "ultimate" can be spelled wrong, where is your spell checker? Nevertheless, a book to be placed on the desk not the shelf, I would prefer and buy a hardcopy if it is available.
This book does not attempt to teach programming with C++ but will give an existing programmer a select and concise overview of both previously existing and new C++ facilities.
